PP imports to Ukraine dropped by 3% in Q1 2021

April 13/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Ukraine"s polypropylene (PP) imports totalled about 30,000 tonnes in January-March of this year, down 3% year on year.
The supply of all grades of propylene polymers decreased, with the exception of propylene block copolymers (PP block copolymers), according to the DataScope Report.

March PP imports into Ukraine increased to 10,700 tonnes from 10,500 tonnes a month earlier. The main increase accounted for the procurement of propylene copolymers, while imports of homopolymer PP declined. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 30,000 tonnes in January-March 2021, compared to 31,000 tonnes a year earlier.

The structure of PP imports by grades looked the following way over the stated period.

Last month"s imports of homopolymer PP to the Ukrainian market decreased due to export restrictions from producers from Azerbaijan and Saudi Arabia and amounted to 7,700 tonnes, while in February this figure was about 8,800 tonnes. Thus, overall homopolymer PP imports reached 23,300 tonnes in the first three months of 2021, down 5% year on year.

Last month"s imports of block propylene copolymers (PP block copolymers) were about 1,400 tonnes, compared to 600 tonnes in February.
About 3,000 tonnes of PP block copolymers were imported in Q1, compared to2,700 tonnes a year earlier. March PP random copolymers imports increased to 1,200 tonnes from 800 tonnes a month earlier, supplies of pipe polypropylene increased.

Overall imports of PP random copolymer reached 2,900 tonnes in the first three months of 2021 versus 3,400 tonnes a year earlier. Overall imports of other propylene copolymers were less than 800 tonnes over the stated period.
